I've Got Knits :: a beret for Niamh
I made a beanie for Niamh's little brother recently and thought that I would like to make one for her too. Having never met Niamh, I asked her Mummy what her favourite colours are. Yellow! But I only had a small amount so I worked what I had in as best as I could (I'm still a beginner!).
My husband doesn't look at my blog, when asked he said: "I don't have to, you tell me everything". Which is sad but true! I told him that I can't speak in pictures so he will have to venture into my blog at some point! And therefore, he doesn't know that I made our son model a girl's beret! Robyn-doll also wanted in on the action so she insisted on posing with it too.
I was recently told by a lovely lady who is teaching me sewing that a sign of a great seamstress is unpicking. I hope this translates to knitting too. I knitted this beret Friday afternoon, then packed the kids up for a weekend in Forster. When I came home Sunday afternoon I looked at the beret and wasn't happy with it so I unravelled about one third and reworked. Now I feel much better. This project was not on my list so I better stop deviating and get focused!
